(Kapas River in Harapan Rainforest)

Lists about rainforests seem to usually be listing which countries have the greatest rate of deforestation. So it was a welcome change to read this commentary in the Jakarta Globe last week, which lists the author's three favourite conservation projects in Indonesia. Those of us involved with Harapan Rainforest know just how important it is, for the forest itself and the people and wildlife that live there, and also for the whole concept of ecosystem restoration concessions in Indonesia. So it was great to see Harapan recognised on this list - see http://thejakartaglobe.beritasatu.com/business/commentary-modifying-indonesias-conservation-methods/ for the full list and more details.
